Postcards: Visiting Hours

On recent Sundays, I’ve been spending some time photographing doggies at the new outdoor South Los Angeles animal shelter. I’m hoping the portraits will help them find their “forever homes.” They’re cute. Many of them are scared. And, as a group, they are loud. This is a postcard I wrote to my husband Jake.

Postcards is a work in progress. The project started when Alex told Jake about God’s Square Mile, New Jersey, a month after Hurricane Sandy. The goal was (and is) to send a message with a picture, two sides of one medium-thick paper rectangle.
